She was hurt by my response. Not because I didn't agree with her point of view, but because she could see just how badly I needed to read the stuff AFTER CHAPTER ONE. Because she was so certain that this book would help me, I decided that I needed to give it another try. I've now not only read the whole book, but have worked through all the exercises. K was right about everything. Loyalty to Your Soul gave me a strategy for dealing with all the little things in my life that seemed to keep me angry more often than I thought they should. Haven't you ever found yourself angry about something and later wondered why something so small could get to you? Maybe you wondered why sometimes the same trigger has a different emotional response? I was caught up in a world where it seemed perfectly sensible to say to someone, "when you do X, it makes me feel (insert negative emotion here)." The reality is that I needed a strategy for identify my own issues that were in fact amplifying the effects of X.
Until I started working through the exercises, I didn't realize how many seemingly innocuous events triggered judgements on my part. And as I delved deeper, I realized that each judgement had a tidy little bundle of self-doubt or negative feelings about myself. My getting angry at a celebrity who got famous despite having no apparent talent was really about my own feelings of not getting enough attention and having to work harder to get noticed. And once I saw that, I could actually let go of those judgmental feelings and not get annoyed when I see that celeb on a magazine cover. This book teaches you how to work through your negative emotions and move on.
The exercises in the book are very simple and not culty, nor new-agey. If you do the work as I have, you will see benefits. Since reading the book last August I've let a lot of old stuff go. But more importantly, I healed enough emotionally to realize that I had some serious issues from my childhood that I needed to deal with via a professional therapist. I now have an awesome doctor and my life is getting is better every day because I stopped pretending that I knew everything that was affecting me, and I actually started working on it. I've also given advice from this book to my own sister. I think that says something about how confident I am about this material.
Now some folks might get turned off by the fact that this book mentions God. Well, the authors don't insist upon any interpretation of God, so you can bring your own. And if you're like me and have trouble with the notion of the all-seeing, all-knowing Being, then do what the folks in 12-step programs do and substitute a "higher power." In my case, "God" refers to the notion that there is love in every person. And if you choose to live your life speaking and acting from that loving authentic self, and if you look for that loving self in others, then you have a supreme force indeed.
So if you're one of the skeptics out there, you have a couple of choices:
* You can continue on with your ego and keep surfing the steady stream of events and images that only serve to piss you off
* You can start owning your responses to the world and use your judgment skills to help yourself.
In conclusion, I'm not a student of USM, nor affiliated with the authors, nor their organization. You don't need to join anything to get some real benefit from Loyalty to Your Soul. I hope this book will help you, and that you too will soon realize that all the love in the world that you ever needed is right there inside you. That's what this book gave me.
I read it quickly as soon as I got it. And then I started again, slowly. Now I am reading just a few pages a day, savoring each bit of loving wisdom that is offered. I also like to fan the pages, stop randomly, and focus on what that process provides, which always seems to be either some guidance that I need at the time or an insight I get to see in a new, ah-ha way.
For me, this book, Loyalty to Your Soul, is like a beautiful puzzle, with the pieces all in place. I can see and appreciate the vision it creates when all the pieces are in place in the whole of the book. And, when I read just a small part, it is like examining the artistic details of color, size, and shape of just one little puzzle piece. Reading the book like this, piece by piece, helps me to experience the peace of soul in my daily life. And, the title. The title itself has power. It reminds me to be loyal to my soul!
